Be prepared to despair, and throw a fit, and be very disappointed with the world. While North America is getting a Collector’s Edition of Metroid: Samus Returns, Europe will be enjoying the spoils of this newly announced Legacy Edition.
The version of the game includes the game, soundtrack, art-book, collector coin, morphball keychain, and a retro-inspired steelbook. Look at that steelbook! I would spend at least $80 on this edition. Metroid: Samus Returns releases on September 17.
